Jill Stein, conspiracy theorist Green Party candidate, will be filing the necessary paperwork to launch a recount in Pennsylvania, according to multiple reports. The CBS affiliate in Philadelphia reports that today is Stein’s deadline:
Pennsylvania’s election law doesn’t allow a candidate to file a challenge. So, Jill Stein can’t actually contest the results herself.
The election law does allow voters to file challenges in individual counties in Pennsylvania – there are 67 of those.
But they’ll have to make their case in a courtroom.
One computer expert cited by Stein claims a 7 percent discrepancy in how Hillary Clinton performed in certain battleground states as compared to pre-election polling.
While Stein herself can’t challenge the results, her campaign has been hard at work raising money from the very Democrat voters she ultimately screwed over by being in the race in the first place. With several million dollars on hand, Stein is either close to funding her 2020 campaign OR she is about to play the role of The Joker from The Dark Knight.
